    Primo Device Usage

    Because Analytics data is aggregated daily based on the UTC time zone, yesterday's data for your library may contain only a partial reporting and may require an additional day to see its full reporting.

    Using the Primo Device Usage subject area, you can create reports that show the number of actions and sessions that are processed for each device type (including the operating system and browser type). For example:
